Case No. 4:13CV00092 KGB
LUXOTTICA RETAIL NORTH AMERICA INC.
d/b/a LENSCRAFTERS and LUXOTTICA RETAIL GROUP
Before the Court is defendant Luxottica Retail North America Inc.’s unopposed motion
to stay proceedings and compel arbitration (Dkt. No. 6). Defendant attaches as an exhibit to the
motion a Dispute Resolution Agreement and an acknowledgment of that agreement signed by
plaintiff Donna L. Watts. Ms. Watts does not oppose defendant’s request to stay the case and
Pursuant to 9 U.S.C. § 3, a court, “upon being satisfied that the issue involved in such suit
or proceeding is referable to arbitration under [a written arbitration agreement], shall on
application of one of the parties stay the trial of the action until such arbitration has been had in
accordance with the terms of the agreement.”
For good cause shown, the Court grants
defendant’s motion to compel arbitration in accordance with the Dispute Resolution Agreement.
Further, the Court stays this case and all pending deadlines in this matter pending the completion
of arbitration proceedings. The parties shall jointly submit a notice updating the Court on the
status of this case no later than ten (10) days following the completion of arbitration. It is further
ordered that the Clerk of Court shall close this case for administrative purposes pending
completion of the arbitration.
